    mamiya 80/2.8 D VS 80/2.8 SK ?

    except the flash sync, is there any difference between the 80 mamiya D and SK version ?

    Scroll down to the 2nd headline for some comparison close ups.

    Generally speaking, they're pretty close stopped down, but wide open the Schneider has the edge in sharpness and chromatic aberration reduction.

    I'm sure others have some very helpful experience and feedback as well on these lenses.

    thanks, that's perfect !

    + jack impressions... i will go for an SK !

    80 AF: Older standard version had sample variation and the cheap body and AF ring, but very good performers in general -- like the 55 above. The D version is notably better with improved contrast and improved corner performance at the wider apertures.

    80 LS: First impression was, "Oh yeah!" It has a more classic Schneider rendering -- very sharp and contrasty wide open in the center, with the extreme corners gently fading off in sharpness with a creamy bokeh. Stopping down one moves the sharpness out further, and stopping down two leaves it sharp and contrasty corner to corner. Stopping down 3 or 4 (f8 and 11) are the prime apertures for outstanding corner to corner sharpness and contrast.
